About Us

All we do is bracing. The products we manufacture are Made in USA. Our braces are an effective, conservative approach to relieving chronic back pain and treating common conditions of the lumbar, thoracic and cervical spine and correcting postural related defects.

History of XBack

For years we sold and fitted back braces through my durable medical equipment company – J and J Medical. We listened to the complaints by individuals that their braces were uncomfortable, hot and confining, heavy and cumbersome, they didn't move with the individual, rode up when the individual sat or drove and were hard to put on, adjust and remove. Many had complicated pulley or other closure systems and some were just pure gimmicks.

Many individuals actually removed the rigid inserts or otherwise tried to modify them to make the brace more comfortable but of course in doing so defeated the intended purpose of the brace itself. In the end they were not happy with their braces and were not wearing them. They did not provide value or support that helped relieve the individual's condition or pain.

They wanted to see something better, so did physicians and I knew there had to be a better way to provide bracing options that were more comfortable to wear and easier put on, etc. So working with leading doctors, we started XBack Bracing Services to design and manufacture better solutions - for patients and doctors.

"All of our braces are designed with your comfort and support in mind!"

  • Americans spend at least $60 billion each year on back pain; and that's just for the more easily identified treatments", over the counter drugs, ineffective low cost "bracing", wraps and elastic braces and binders and other so called "cures".

  • Back braces are helpful at controlling pain by limiting these noxious movements and allowing the damaged structures to heal.
